There is a main reception are at ground level that features an open floor plan and a minimal wooden desk. Access to the first floor and exhibition room is provided by outdoor stairs or a long ramp with a cute bench for resting and breathing fresh air. Big posters on the first floor’s exposed burnt clay brick walls (used as an eco alternative to cement) inform visitors about local natural wonders while providing a space for watching films.

The Nishorgo Oirabot Nature Interpretation Centre has achieved the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and will continue to cherish the local environment while educating visitors within its eco-friendly walls.
